The CPN Executive met for the second time this year. Among other things we discussed the first Critical Physiotherapy Course, which kicked off with David Nicholls on The Architecture of Movement a few weeks ago. The course will have six more talks from six very exciting critical thinkers.
We were impressed by the conversation that followed David’s talk. The success of the first session gives us hope that the course will spark innovative critical models for future physiotherapy. The recordings will also make a valuable archive of Critical Physiotherapy.
The Executive would like to thank Tobba Sudmann for her superb chairing of the first session. The session would not have ran so smoothly without her. We would also like to thank Dave for introducing Paul Virilio’s thought into physiotherapy. Dave’s talk exemplified such transformative thinking that will help move physiotherapy forwards in the increasingly complex and demanding future.
The course is a result of over a year and a half of planning. There have been many people who have contributed along the way. The Exec would like to express a special thanks to Tobba Sudmann and Hazel Horobin for presenting in the dress rehearsals. We would also like to thank (in no particular order) Kate Waterworth, Carmen Caeiro, Jenny Ralls, Kirstin Glasgow, Lucy Gwynne, Patty Thille, Fiona Moffatt, Shaun Cleaver, Alma Viviana Silva Guerrero, Jeffrey Andrion, Kristian Rosskopf, Clarissa Araujo, Emmanuel Jacob, Anthea Goslin, Rasha Okasheh, Neil Tuttle, Tobba Sudmann, Miriam Yates, Helen Harte, Karila Faulkner, Filip Maric, Anna Rajala, and Nicky Wilson.
There have been many others who have helped along the way and we would like to thank each and every one of you.
